Arsenal suffered the blow of missing out on a Champions League place, will be without best defender Laurent Koscielny for the final following his red card against Everton and also lost Gabriel Paulista to injury.
But Chelsea boss Conte fears the Gunners will be fired up to salvage their season at Wembley next week and warned his players they need to be ready to match Arsene Wenger’s men.
Conte said: “If you ask me who you think the favourites are now, I think it’s Arsenal. They only have this possibility to find a good season after a win in the FA Cup.
“For this reason, we must find motivation and find in ourselves the right anger. The game will be very difficult, above all for this reason.
“Arsenal have missed out on the Champions League for the first time in I don’t know how many years, so we must prepare in the right way.
“I’m not talking tactically. I’m talking about motivation, the right fire in our soul and our hearts.
“If we have this in the same proportion as Arsenal in that respect, we have the possibility to do the Double and win. Otherwise we risk a lot.”
